THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
For visitors to "Bill's camp " at C3. There is a large honey bee hive in the big tree about 18 feet from the
edge of one of the biggest holes.
I suspect something had them riled up as normally we all get along. Maybe a black bear had been honey shopping. After the 2nd sting in 10 minutes I left all the flint for the next diggers
On the plus side, that big field right overgrown on Bill's camp has more Butterflies than I have ever seen in one place.
I doubt there's any repellent that works on bees. Seven dust thrown on the entrance of their hive at night works to get rid of them. Bees aren't active after dark.
Good victory food after scoring a g-10
We dug in the vicinity of the bee nest yesterday...
They cant be the "normal" admirable hardworking creatures that we all love and admire.
They swarmed and buzzed like mad hornets the entire time we were there. You could hear them 50 feet away.
No stings but we stayed well away.
I'm thinking they may be of the Zulu or Mau-Mau variety
GOOD NEWS ....The meanie bees have moved out..Some diggers already working towards big tree
Brought forward June '13 to tie in with a report of a man that died of bee stings in Moody tx. ( Near C3 )
Why such shallow digging? Is that the bottom of the camp site there?
